Suprised I beat 66dvlbird68 to this :tongue:

Satellites, pagers, cell phones and electrical grids could be affected Friday afternoon by a powerful stream of energized gas and particles from the sun.

The coronal mass ejection, or CME, is expected to reach Earth about 3 p.m. EDT and its effects could last 12 to 18 hours, according to space weather forecasters.

Not really, was caused by an erruption of a sunspot.. The sun basically farted at us. What we'll get hit with is electromagnetic waves.

Don't these usually excite the northern lights a bit? I remember a pretty nasty one a year or three ago, and I could just barely see the aurora all the way down here, which doesn't ever happen. :)

According to everything I've heard and read about it, northern states (maybe even northern OR) might be able to catch a glimpse of the northern lights tonight.
